South Africa is getting some hot new residents this January as the Love Island cast swap Mallorca for a new villa in Cape Town.
Winter Love Island 2020 needed a hot new location for the first January series - so where is the new villa? And can we stay there?
The summer show is usually filmed in Mallorca which just wouldn’t do for the new show, hosted by Laura Whitmore. So the ITV cast have uprooted everything and gone to sunnier climes in South Africa.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Love Island villa location and whether the general public can stay there after:
The new Love Island villa will be filmed and set in Cape Town, South Africa. That’s an 11-hour flight from London for the new singletons hoping to find love this January.
It’s thought the location of the luxury villa is placed in an exclusive neighbourhood in South Africa and is believed to be worth more than £5million
It’s not confirmed yet whether you can stay in the new villa.
There have, however, been reports that it’s been previously rented out for £105,000 a month. Slightly out of budget then…
